Info about Ipswich & Suffolk Club
The Ipswich and Suffolk Club is a private members club that offers a varied range of social, sporting and fine dining benefits to its members and is also available for hire to both members and non-members as a fine venue for small to medium-sized meetings, conferences, civil weddings, private parties and functions.
Tucked unobtrusively between Northgate Street, and Tower Street, in the shadow of St Mary Le Tower Church, the club has provided a haven for its members since the 19th Century and The Ipswich & Suffolk Club has long been referred to as one of Suffolk’s best-kept secrets.
Formerly the residence for the Archdeacon of Suffolk, Archdeacon's House was built on the site of the original Archdeacon's Palace and is steeped in history. The building today is mainly 18th/19th Century but does retain some of the 16th/17th Century structure. The 15th Century gatehouse fronting Northgate Street was originally commissioned by William Pykenham in 1471 and is the oldest remaining evidence of the original building. More information on the Pykenham Gatehouse can be found here.
Inside Archdeacon’s House, the club offers a comfortable and elegant venue for its many social activities and its grounds provide a convenient town-centre parking facility exclusively for its members.
